Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end.

Messiah Brings Salvation

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has annointed me to preach good news to the poor.

He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,

To proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,

To proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor,

To comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who greive to Zion —

To bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,

The oil of gladness instead of mourning,

And a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair,

They will be called oaks of righteousness,

A planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor,

Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion,

For great is the Holy One of Israel among you.

Isaiah 61:1-3; 12:6

Second Sunday of Advent

Welcome
Lighting of the Advent Candle

Messiah Brings Peace – Isaiah 11:1-4a, 6a, 9

A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse;
From his roots a Branch will bear much fruit.
The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him–
The Spirit of wisdom and of understanding.
The Spirit of counsel and power.
The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord —
And he will delight in the fear of the Lord.
He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes,
Or decide by what he hears with his ears;
But with righteousness he will judge the needy,
with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth.
The wolfe will live with the lamb,
The leopard will lie down with the goat,
They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain,
For the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
